You know the old saying “you can’t have it all”? Well, for today at least we are saying you can, in fact, have it all! What I mean by this is that we have formally concluded our ZSRx Parents and Families: Deacon Development 101 online class – BUT our incredible E-learning Librarian, Kyle Denlinger, has migrated all the course materials to a web site that will be accessible to all, regardless of whether you signed up for the ZSRx Parents and Families class.
Kyle has set up a separate site with all of the reading materials and videos from the course. On this new site, you will be able to access the course material at your own pace or share it with fellow parents, without needing to log in or navigate through the formal course in Canvas.
As a reminder, the ZSRx Parents and Families: Deacon Development 101 class was designed to help you understand the behavior and developmental milestones of your college students. In that course, we talked about the following – and those sections are all represented on the new web site:
– An overview of the Millennial Generation
– Academics (development and challenges, sources of support)
– Identity (how college students explore and refine it)
– Wellbeing (the various dimensions of wellbeing and how to attend to them)
Think of this web site as a tool kit that has everything that was included in the ZSRx course except the online discussion boards. There is no special signup or login needed – it’s a regular website like any other.
So if you didn’t sign up for ZSRx Parents and Families: Deacon Development 101 – or if you did and did not have time to navigate through the course week by week – bookmark this site and access the materials whenever you like.
On behalf of the ZSRx team, we want to say thank you to all of you who signed up, tuned in, shared your thoughts. And many thanks to the ZSR Library and our campus partners who provided content. We couldn’t have done this without you!
